At 6:30am. I am so not a morning person. It's an abdominal scan. I've been having a lot of abdominal pain and severe distention for a while (I had to buy nightgowns because even my baggiest jammie pants that normally fall off me didn't fit). Since Sunday, the lower abdominal pain has been really bad. At times I can barely stand it and feel like I'm going to pass out. My doctor said that my abdomen has changed a lot since I first started seeing her and with all the issues I've had, and with it getting progressively worse, she thinks it's time to do a CT scan and then possibly a colonoscopy. Oh, and I've lost quite a bit of weight which I thought was a good thing because I had gained weight. But, I haven't done anything different to cause the weight loss so she's concerned about that, too. Please keep good thoughts for me. I have an appointment with difficult child's therapist today and difficult child has an appointment with the therapist tomorrow. I don't know how I'm going to make it through the appointments.
